GONZALEZ DE REQUENA FARRE, Juan Antonio. The problem of rule-following in Michael Oakeshott. Rev. humanid. Valpso. [online]. 2021, n.17, pp.289-310.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 0719-4234.

The role of rules in our normative practices constitutes a relevant philosophical problema, mainly associated with Wittgenstein’s philosophy, but to which Michael Oakeshott has also attempted to answer. Not surprisingly, some scholars have found parallels between their conceptions of human practices and rule-following. Through an exegesis of the notion and uses of the rule in Oakeshott's works, this article aims to clarify the link between rule-following and normative authorization. In this way, it will be possible to to decide the originality and specificity of Oakeshott’s contribution and settle the question of the differences with the Wittgensteinian problematization of rule-following.

Keywords : practices; rule-following; normativity; authority; moral association.
